Happy St. Patrick's Day

This day can not go by without
me thinking of a day about 30+
years ago.

In my quest to make an Irish
meal for my, now deceased
husband, Marvin... I was making
an Irish Stew. While it was
cooking I decided to make
Shamrock cookies. Yes, green
cookies. To go with the rest
of the green food.

My best buddy was visiting.
Of course with our usual
wisecracking back and forth,
she said something of which
neither of us can remember.
But my reaction to that remark
goes down in our history of
friendship of over 30+ years.

You see I was rolling the dough
in little green balls, so I could
make the leave part of the
Shamrock. When she made
her remark, I threw the ball
at her. To my shock, and hers
too.... it landed on the
bridge of her glasses.
Thank God for glasses.
Some of it did reach her
eye. At first there was silence.
And then laughter.

So Happy St. Pat's,
Cherie
